Recent Chado Ralph Rucci Silver & White Dress

When you think about Rucci's work you think precision tailoring and cut. He is known to piece fabric together with the eye of the couturier and this chic little white dress with silver leather inserts is a good example of that. It has the feel of a mod sixties piece with its A-line cut and angular seaming. The front cross is formed with silver leather inset by hand. Each shoulder has a strip of leather to give it a bit of trim and the back a panel of leather that is cleverly worked into the design and hides the zipper that runs up and along one seam at an angle. Note the hem with is suspended band of fabric - each stitch placed by hand. The white label is used for both his ready to wear and custom lines and with all the hand work and finishes on this dress I would side with a custom piece. Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Fully lined in a hand set fine white silk. It closes with a hidden set zipper. Note that it is more of a white in person then how it photoed.
